“AWESOME!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2011

I've tried other hotels in Whistler and by far, this is my favorite! It's right across the road from Lost Lake, there's a bus stop right in front of it, a 15 minute walk to the village, a 5 minute drive to the village, great and spacious underground parking, great rooms, great pool and hot tub, and great wi-fi!

But there's no pets aloud.

Happy Traveling!

Steve

We booked an anonymous room on the Whistler Blackcomb website as a last minute deal and were given a one bedroom room at Horstman House at a significant discount. It turned out to be a perfect home away from home for my wife and I for our 5 day stay at Whistler.

The location is as good as pretty much anywhere in Whistler given the convenience of the free shuttles. The full kitchen and TV of Horstman House was a great way to spend the evening while we recovered from days of skiing.

The rooms were clean and comfortable. Everything was easy to use. There are bus stops right in front of the building and it is a 5 minute trip to the chairlifts and/or village.

This is our second stay at the Horstman House, and the first time in winter. We will definitely make this our repeat lodging in Whistler. It is in the upper village, comfortably away from the crowds, yet convenient to town with a free bus stop right outside. In terms of ski access, the Blackcomb day lodge was just 3 stops away, and you can supposedly ski back to it (although we didn't try this).
Accomodations were cozy, and pretty standard for this class of condo. Kitchen could have been stocked with a fry pan, but otherwise had everything we needed. There is a gas fireplace, and 2 small flat screen TV's. Although the one in the bedroom was hooked up to a VCR, which probably no one uses anymore. The outdoor hot tub and pool is a nice feature of the property, and it was not overly crowded when we went to use it. Other amenities include locked storage for skis, pool table in the lobby.
This is a small property, low key, but very comfortable, and convenient.

Perfect location. Close enough to the village but just far enough away. We were there during Crankworx and it was great. The pool area was fantastic. The 2 bdrm was over 900 sq ft; huge.

Been there for the second time last January (from the 23rd to the 31st), now with my wife, kid, sister, brother in law & 2 nieces in a 2 bedroom unit. Everything just the same: quiet place in the upper village, good neighborhood & 3 minutes drive from Blackcomb`s base. Room still clean and in good shape. Honest residence-like service. Just perfect for the rate we've paid. Recommend again!

Wow, the apartment we had at Horstman House was just fantastic! Really spacious, big comfy bed, wonderful bathroom and all the mod-cons, and all this for a fraction of the cost of staying in the very centre of Whistler. The down-side? A 5-minute drive into the village. Big deal, eh? You also get a great view of Blackcomb mountain, and are just minutes away from some great bike trails.

Staff were accommodating enough, but overall this place has the feel of a 4-star hotel. Added to this the gorgeous swimming pool, hot tub and BBQ facilities, as well as the free pool table and games room next to the lobby - it all added up to a really rewarding stay. Would DEFINITELY recommend!

We rented a car from Vancouver airport - Free underground parking at the Horstman House. A lot of people said one of the village was really close for groceries but when we went it was pretty darn cold so walking that distance wasn't pleasant, we just drove. If it was warmer out then the walk would be nice. It's about a 1-min drive down a sloped set of streets.
The bus pick up is right in front of the Horstman House, very convienient. There is also a ski-in from Blackcomb, but the run colour (I forget now) was blue I think and I was too scared to try it, hahaha.
Horstman was cozy...lobby had a pool table, our room was quite large, 1bdrm with living room, farely large balcony, open-concept living room, dining area and kitchen and a large bathroom with tub and separate shower. There was a gas fire place, 2 TV's (one in the living room & one in the bedroom), and a mini CD player. Maid service daily but just to do simple things like take out garbage, give us towels....they only change sheets on the 3rd day.
I would defintely recommend this place to someone....the price was right, and the amount of room we had in there was perfect. It was cozy in our little apartment. We had a fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher....we cooked most of our meals in our room.
